The 5K course at Swan Creek Preserve Metropark was funded and mapped by the Toledo Roadrunners Club!  Let's enjoy it together!  It is an all purpose paved trail, great for all ages and abilities.  The course consists of an upper loop (approximately 1.7 miles) with the balance being an out and back.  If you don't want to run or walk the full 5K, come out and complete 1.7 miles!

The event is free for Toledo Roadrunners Club members, $8.00 for non-members.  $13.00 unisex cotton blend shirt add-on (see shirt below).  Online registration only.  Online registration will be open until the start of the event.  During registration, you'll be prompted to fill in "I Run ..."   Let us know why you run!  Have fun with it!  It is optional.

Check-in at the Mary Jane Gill shelter.  Check in starts at 5:30pm.  The shelter is located south of the playground.  Use the parking lot off Airport Highway.

There will be a clock set up. There are no awards.

Water and snacks will be available at the conclusion of event.  There will also be some giveaways!

Do to the low cost and the t-shirt being an add on, race insurance is not offered for this event.
